Have eaten here quite a few times and never lets me down. Food is always great and portions are very generous. If you are in town try the Exchange you will not be disappointed.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times - beautiful food. Tonight was the 1st time I had encountered such a rude waitress. We pleasantly asked when we were to be seated at a high stool table if we could be seated at a lower level table. The waitress said yes but seemed clearly unhappy with us, unfriendly & rude!...

I went here for lunch with a friend without our toddlers and had a lovely time. We were seated straight away and had our drinks orders taken. The food was served fairly quickly and were very large portions. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very relaxing but we did feel it was a little too dark for lunch time. We... More

Went here recently with friends for lunch. This was my first time here in years after a bad experience when here for dinner before. Although food was good then, service was not! We just walked in off the street and were seated immediately. I ordered the ceaser salad which was huge and really tasty. My two friends enjoyed their burger... More

I always spoke highly of this establishment for eating out. However when my family eat in here on Monday 2nd January 2017 the food was tasteless and not much better than fast food. I was not the only one to mention this as I spoke to others that dined here over the Christmas period and they said the same. I... More

I eat here regularly, the main reason is the vegetable stack with haloumi and veggies. Love this dish. Super staff who are efficient and know their stuff.
